Looking for an Access Course?

Access to Higher Education (HE) Diplomas are specially designed for students who do not hold the required qualifications to study at degree level. They prepare you for higher-level study and are fantastic for those looking to retrain in a new career, or perhaps return to education as a mature student.

As well as offering you the opportunity to build confidence and study skills, Access courses offer vital experience of university-level study and ensure learners can work towards a degree with confidence.

Access to HE Diplomas are a highly regarded and successful route into university for adult learners who may lack traditional qualifications. As well as enhancing your general education, these courses are tailored to enable progression onto Higher Education courses or professional advanced training.
